Tonight I think is the night I decide if I'm sticking with 'Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D', or if I'm giving it up. I'm just not enjoying it as much as I was hoping I would. Don't get me wrong; Coulson is...well, he's Coulson. He is magnificent! And Agent Mae is a brilliant character and I would watch her beat up people while complaining to Coulson all the live long day.

But every other character? I haven't even bothered to learn their names. I know there's Fitz and Simmons, but I don't know which is which and I don't care. (I actual twins for the first 3 episodes and their parents gave them those names to be cruel.)

I watch the Marvel movies for Captain America and Iron Man and Black Widow. I spend the TV show wondering how those 4 have higher clearance than Hawke Eye and the Black Widow, and why they can't know Coulson lived because and why all these episodes are about Extremis when Tony worked out a fix for it to save Pepper's life at the end of IM3. I wonder why in the TV show all the people with powers so far have been evil and we never see them again.

I want the movies in the show. If I want to watch agents of a government agency I've never heard of before battling the enemy of the week, I can get that from pretty much any show. I want superheroes and people who I have absolutely nothing in common with because they've got magical powers and I want them kicking arse on the side of good.

And then I feel guilty for not liking the "normal" characters, because they're not bad characters. They just not the right characters.

This is not the show I was hoping for.

ETA: And after that, it's not even on tonight. THIS IS WHY I DON'T LIKE FAST TRACKING FROM THE US!!

Only 3 more posts until I hit 1000! Like I said in an earlier post - feel free to ask me any question/s you want, and I shall answer them in the 1000th post.
